Who’s going where, and who’s not going anywhere…
Baked-bean head Mikael Silvestre was reportedly undergoing a medical at Man City when he was informed that Arsene Wenger wished to sign him. ‘Silvestre immediately abandoned the medical and hurtled down the M1 to meet Gunners boss Wenger and discuss terms,’ The Sun claims. Hope he stuck to the 70mph speed limit.
If Silvestre did join Arsenal, he’d be the first Man Utd player to be sold to the Gunners in 34 years.
